Maquicils, Définicils, Amplicils, Cils Design, L’Extreme, Ôscillation…  These are just a few of the very successful mascaras Lancôme has introduced to the beauty world.  And joining the ranks now isHypnôse Doll Eyes.

It apparently took Lancôme 7 years to perfect the brush of this mascara! It’s a hybrid wand hat has a conical tip to ease use on even the shortest of lashes.  It has a smooth texture that is enriched with nylon powders to add a nice sheen to lashes and anUltrastretch complex that “extends” the lashes.  I tried it on my own lashes.  It did make lashes appear longer without clumping them up!

As I have a habit of smelling almost everything I can get my hands on, I was pleased to find a nice soft rose scent in the mascara.  The fragrance in it is hypoallergenic by the way.

And as a great complement to the mascara, there are 2 limited edition eye shadow palettes available during the launch.

Available at selected Lancôme counters from now.

Let’s start with Lancôme‘s L’Absolu Rouge Smoky Roses with Kate Winslet fronting the campaign.  A limited edition collection of smouldering pinks in sensuous creamy satin texture with the patented Pro-Xylane™, Lancôme’s most comprehensive replenishing molecule.  Lips feel smoothed and plumped on application.

Declaring Indigo

2009 July 20, Monday

Lancôme‘s fall makeup collection will be in stores soon and I had the privilege of being part of their launch to the press.

Declaring Indigo has a nice mix of high fashion blues with hues of gold and black for the eyes and bold, bold red for the lips.

The La Palette Liberté comes in 2 different combinations. One holds 2 different shades of gold and 2 blues of the same shade.  But one has gold pigments to add sparkle to your eyes and the other without.  The other compact has three different shades of gold with a gold pigmented black.  The looks you can create with these 2 palettes can go from subtle to dramatic!  You can also reshape, extend and dramatize your eyes with the Ink Artliner.  A cream eyeliner in a jar that is budge-proof.  The gold and blue eye pencils together with the limited Virtuôse mascara that’s deep blue with tiny glitter pigments will help you achieve more dramatic effect.

Color Fever Matt comes in THREE shades of red!  So you can pick the red that most flatters your complexion.  Beauty tip  :  Wearing the right red lip colour can make teeth appear whiter!  😉

And the are 2 shades of Color Fever Gloss.  One red and the other one gold.

There’s also a lovely compact powder called Rose Liberté.  A pressed powder that, with a soft nuance of highlights, you can brush partially or all over your face and décolletage to make your skin glow!

Let your imagination run wild!
